What kind of problems are you looking for ?! If you read back through some of the threads, you will find a plethora of problems !!!
I was told by my ET many years ago that losing your natural way of going to the bathroom, whether urostomy, colostomy, ileostomy, whatever - is similar to losing any part of the body. Like an amputee. You can have some of the same types of phantom feelings and you can go through some of the same depressions, etc. It is a HUGE adjustment and we are all here in this forum to support each other. We have all gone thru or are about to go thru similar surgeries, procedures.

Ditto - I feel the same as flchurchlady and summerstorm! Not my first choice, but it made me healthy again (and saved my life).
